Happy Towel Day. As the single most useful item in the universe, I'd advise you to wrap yourself with your thickest and softest towel and join me in looking at what the punditocracy wants us to believe about the state of our country. Remember: Don't Panic!
Bush's Brain Karl Rove will be on This Week, no doubt acting as if he has nothing to worry about with subpoenas over his head. And on Meet the Press, the pundits will talk about the presidential election, lots of hackery to be had there, I'm sure. Finally, Mary Tillman will be Late Edition to promote her new book on her son, Pat Tillman.
